Had fun today, here's what I did. Finished mixing a song a couple of days ago and i had borrowed one Auratone speaker from my neighbouring studio for mono-vintage-radiobroadcast-midrange-sounding monitoring. I usually do that to finetune mixes, tells right away if something sticks out too much. Returned the Auratone and missed it right away. Figured that basically the whole thing is just a one speaker/sealed enclosure thing with limited freq resp. Went to the music shop and found a small active speaker, Behringer MS16. It's a two way speaker with a bassreflex port on the front but what hit me was that the woofer seemed to be the same size as the one in auratones. And the price is only about $90 for a pair so that was not too much of a gamble if it had not worked out. Back in the studio I filled the bassreflex port with a piece of a towel so it filled up very tightly and I put som black self-adhesive film to cover it. then I opened the thing and disconnected the HF-driver so only the woofer is sounding. I also covered that up with some cloth and black film for the loox. The thing has a bass and treble control and i turned them way down. Hooked it up to the mono-sum output of my mixer and, yes, it sounded as auratone as only an auratone can. A little tweaking on the eq got me even closer, now I can hardly tell the difference between them. So the result is an "active auratone" for $90. Oh, sorry it's a pair of them if I do the mod on the other one aswell. This thing is so useful it's worth the money many times over.
